"From a young age, I have always had a strong interest in airplanes. My father was a mechanic and saw the aptitude in me at a young age. The moment I realized that I could mix my love of aircraft and maintenance into one career, that became my goal. I love what I do and have never looked back."
Entry Level Example
"I initially enrolled in vocational school to become a computer scientist. After a couple of semesters, my admissions officer suggested that I specialize in aircraft electrical systems. This career path sounded fascinating to me. I am happy airline maintenance is the direction I chose to take."
"I chose a career as an aircraft maintenance technician because I wanted to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather who was an AMT for the military. He took so much pride in his work, which is why I admired him so much."
